The charm of the Millennium City caught the eyeballs of a Canadian province head who hailed Gurgaon as a place of "immense potential".
The Premier of British Columbia, Christy Clark, who is in India as part of her Asia tour, visited the city's cultural hotspot Kingdom of Dreams on Thursday.
In an interaction with HT, she hailed the city as a "phenomenally growing hub of Fortune-500 companies with immense potential to develop on the lines of world's best cities". Expressing her interest in collaborating with the Gurgaon authorities over "symmetrical" needs of good infrastructure and clean fuel, she said, "Indians are great innovators and in building our cities too, their contribution is immense."
Clark praised the display of Indian culture at Kingdom of Dreams, saying, "This place feels better than Vegas and even Disneyland." Clark also appreciated the young talent pool in the city and invited students to Canada. "It's not just Bollywood that connects us. We can take our associations forward on so many respects,” she added.
